Leonardo da Vinci always had special meaning for the Musée du Louvre. The Louvre invites art lovers to the “Leonardo da Vinci” Exhibition, where they can see the masterpieces of Vinci, the details of his life and the aspects that he had not seen before. Visitors who want to attend this long-awaited event will need to make a reservation. The exhibition will be open from October 24, 2019, to February 24, 2020.

Musée du Louvre has positioned five paintings of Leonardo da Vinci at the center of this event. The Virgin of the Rocks, La Belle Ferronnière, the Mona Lisa, the Saint John the Baptist, and the Saint Anne are the main elements of the exhibition. Vinci's paintings, drawings, and sculptures will be used to create an extraordinary configuration.

This previously unprecedented retrospective will shed light on Vinci's career as a painter, the importance of the painting, and the approach he defined as “the science of painting" and used to create his masterpieces.

In the process of preparing this exhibition, a very different way has been followed up to the studies conducted so far. In order to better understand the artistic approach and technique of Vinci, there have been many studies including new scientific techniques on his works in the Louvre. In order to make the biography of Leonardo da Vinci more clear, the archive documents have been completely re-researched. This exhibition will unleash the extraordinary aspects of Vinci.

The curators of this special exhibition include Vincent Delieuvin, Department of Paintings, and Louis Frank, and Musée du Louvre.
